Continuing tension in the West Bank and Israeli calls to "rein in" the occupation soldiers Israeli forces raided the village of Qarawat Bani Hassan, in the northern West Bank, which resulted in violent confrontations between the army and the Palestinian residents. The head of the "Meretz" party called for "restraining the Israeli army soldiers."  On Saturday, 10 Palestinians were wounded by Israeli army bullets, during a military force storming the village of Qarawat Bani Hassan, west of the city of Salfit, in the northern West Bank.  And the Palestinian Ministry of Health said in a brief statement that two serious injuries, "with live bullets from the occupation in the chest, arrived at Salfit Governmental Hospital."  While activists on social networks circulated pictures and videos of Israeli forces inside the village, violent confrontations erupted with the Palestinian residents.  Palestinian journalist Mo'in Rayan, a resident of the village, said that more than 10 Israeli military vehicles raided the village on Saturday afternoon.  He added that the confrontations began in the center of the village and then moved to its outskirts, pointing to obstruction of the residents' access to their farms to pick olives, and forcing workers working in workshops to leave them.  "Control the Israeli army"  For her part, Meretz party leader (left) Zahava Galon called on Defense Minister Benny Gantz to "rein in the IDF soldiers," pointing out that there is an "unreasonable" increase in the number of Palestinians killed by Israel in the West Bank.  Galon said during a cultural event in the city of Petah Tikva, "The Minister of Defense must control the IDF soldiers and restrain them."  She added: "There is an unreasonable increase in the number of Palestinians killed during the past year, including those killed due to the easing of the open fire regulations."  And on Saturday, the United Nations announced the death of at least 100 Palestinians in the West Bank since the beginning of this year, amid the escalation of Israeli military operations in the region.  Galon continued, "The settlers riot against the Palestinians, and this causes an escalation. The army secures convoys of settlers who come to provoke (...) there must be a firmer hand against the settlers."  It criticized Israeli calls for the army's entry into the northern West Bank in a military operation similar to the "Defensive Shield" carried out by the Israeli army in late March 2002.  "On the other hand, we are witnessing the awakening of disorganized Palestinian youth in Jerusalem in Jenin and Nablus. Those who are now calling for the introduction of the IDF into Jenin, in the so-called protective shield, must understand that the region will witness an escalation," said the Meretz head.  Galon also attacked the extremist Knesset member Itamar Ben Gvir, the leader of the "Religious Zionism" party, over his rioting in Jerusalem and his participation in the storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque, describing him as a "thug and instigator."  She added: "His entry into Jerusalem will be accompanied by rioters from the hills (extremist Jewish youths from the settlement outposts in the West Bank), and the Minister of Defense should declare them a terrorist organization and call for the lifting of immunity from Ben Gvir for encouraging and inciting terrorism."  And she considered that the goal of the extremist Knesset member is to "ignite a religious conflict in Jerusalem, especially in the Palestinian neighborhoods, until it reaches the Temple Mount (the Temple Mount / Al-Aqsa Mosque)."  She said that Ben Gvir is ready to sacrifice the blood of Jews and Arabs in order to take a picture of his electoral campaign, in reference to the parliamentary elections scheduled in Israel early next month.  The West Bank has been witnessing tension for several months, especially the cities of Nablus and Jenin, where the Israeli army killed dozens of Palestinians, and the city of Jerusalem is witnessing tension due to the settlers' repeated incursions into Al-Aqsa Mosque.
